Parent Survey


East Side families, It is time for you to complete the Georgia Parent Survey. The data gathered from these surveys will be used as part of the calculation of East Side’s School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.  We ask for one parent from each family to complete the survey by Friday, December 15, 2017.

Georgia Parent Survey:

STEM on November 29th

We will have our next school wide STEM day on November 29th.  If you have any of the following items, we would love to have them to use with our projects.  Thank you so much!

–          Corks (used)

–          Acorns (from your neighborhood)

–          Small plastic figurines (Example:  Polly Pockets)

Lunch on Friday, November 3 and Kiwanis Circle K Club

We will have lunch at 12:01-12:31 on Friday, November 3rd.  

East Side Elementary is proud to support the Kiwanis Circle K Club of Kennesaw State University and Georgia Highlands Paulding Campus to promote the America Reads program this year.  America Reads Initiative is a federal program that allows KSU and GHC work study students to tutor elementary and middle school students in Paulding and surrounding counties who are in need.  Please consider donating a gently used or new book, but please don’t put your child’s name in it.  A note of encouragement about the joys of reading that is slipped between the pages of a book is most welcome.  The book drive will run until November 30th.  Boxes are placed by the cafeteria and gym doors.

Thank You!!!

We had so much fun today!  I would like to thank everyone for volunteering your time and for donating items for our fall centers.  I truly appreciate you all.  

News You Can Use

Students really enjoyed the Creek in-house field trip yesterday!  Thank you to Mr. Hammond for helping with the centers!

Please continue to have your child ask and answer questions about his/her reading.  We will take the summative next week.  We will also take the Creek/Cherokee summative next week.  Please review the study guide that will be in your child’s homework binder today.

The weather is changing, so please make sure your child wears a jacket/coat to school.  Thank you!

Thank you! Thank you!

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes, cards, hugs, flowers, treats, and all of the other amazing gifts.  I really do appreciate you all for making my birthday special!  I’m so lucky to have such wonderful families! 




IXL is working again and the kids are super excited about it!  Each student should have the login information inside of his/her homework binder.  Please let me know if you need another copy.  🙂
